So, clearly the NRA would be welcome in our house. Although they might have to duck some foam bullets. I do get a kick out of parents who refuse to allow their boys any weapons. Admittedly I was one of them for a very short time. Didn't want to be politically incorrect you know. But I got over it. Clearly.
There are moments that make me cringe though. I guess, being the mom, that is my job. Like the other night in the bathtub when Paige is slapping the bubbles and saying, "kill the bubbles, kill 'um!" Uh-huh. Or when Rick is pelting the boys so fast that they can't hardly keep up - what an example!
So, if you should ever find yourself in need of a weapon you know where to go. Water is a particularly good ammo for hot days or misbehaving cats and marshmallows work great against siblings (keeps them out of your hair as they search for the free snack). Nerf has a wide range of uses including, but not limited to, shooting super balls and sticky frogs out of high, unreachable window sills and getting rid of pesky annoyances like cats and little sisters. Multiple weapons, multiple types of ammo and definitely multiple uses!
